In addition, any number of commands, state variables, semaphores, or messages can be added to a logical flow for enhanced utility, billing, performance, measurement, troubleshooting, etc. It should be understood that all such modifications are within the scope of the present invention.

  Referring also to FIG. 5a, a logic flow begins at block 64 where the mobile telephone 10 functions as a calling device that detects the presence of another electronic item or target device 66. As will be appreciated, the target device 66 detects the presence of the mobile phone 10 instead of, or in addition to, the mobile phone 10 that detects the presence of the target device 66. It is possible. In the illustrated embodiment, the target device 66 is another mobile phone, but the target device 66 may be any other device where data is transferred from a calling device (such as the mobile phone 10 of the illustrated embodiment). It will be understood that these devices may be used.

  Detection of the target device 66 can be accomplished using any suitable local communication link. In the preferred embodiment, the NFC chip will detect the mobile phone 10 when the mobile phone 10 enters the NFC communication range of the target device 66.

  Proceeding next to block 68, a wireless interface between the mobile telephone 10 and the target device 66 may be established. The wireless interface may be any wireless communication connection or network connection that can support efficient data transfer. Such connections include connection schemes such as Bluetooth, WiFi (for example, operating under the IEEE 802.11 standard, etc.), infrared, or other WLAN connections. As shown, NFC can be used to configure a wireless interface between the mobile telephone 10 and the target device 66 and to activate this wireless interface. Thus, when the two devices 10, 66 are positioned within relatively close proximity to each other, the devices 10, 66 can automatically recognize each other's presence (block 64) and then automatically activate the wireless interface. And can exchange data over the wireless interface (block 68). In this embodiment, no user interaction with the mobile telephone 10 or the target device 66 is required or only required at a minimum to configure the interface. In one embodiment, user authentication to establish a wireless interface may be required as part of block 68. Manual or partially manual interface establishment may be used in block 68 separately from the above.

  Next, at block 70, the logic flow waits until a specified movement of the originating device (mobile phone 10) is detected. The designated motion can be referred to as a transfer motion (the movement represented by arrow 72), but this transfer motion can be an intuitive movement of the mobile phone 10. In one embodiment, the transfer motion is a “pour” motion that resembles a tilting motion, ie, a motion of pouring liquid from the pitcher into the glass. The movement of pouring liquid from the pitcher to the glass relies on gravity and proper alignment of the pitcher on the glass. It will be appreciated that wireless data transfer does not rely on these parameters. Therefore, the mobile telephone 10 may be located above the target device 66 or may not be located above. For example, the mobile telephone 10 may be located below the target device 66 when the transfer motion 72 is performed, or may be located on the side of the target device 66. In particular, when the transfer motion 72 is a motion other than a tilting motion, it is not necessary to rotate the mobile phone 10 such that the pitcher can pour liquid.

  In the example shown in FIGS. 5a and 5b, one of the transfer motions 72 of the mobile telephone 10 is directed, for example, so that it is directed away from the target electronic device toward the target electronic device. Rotating the top or upper end. This rotation step may include moving the mobile telephone 10 such that the longitudinal axis (vertical axis) 74 of the mobile telephone 10 passes through the horizontal plane 76 (eg, the vertical axis 74 is , When drawn from the bottom of the mobile phone 10 to the top, it will begin at a positive angle with respect to the horizontal plane 76 and end at a negative angle with respect to the horizontal plane 76). The horizontal plane 76 may be a plane that extends through the target device 66 or may be a plane that remains within the target device 66.

  In other embodiments, the transfer motion 72 can include moving the angle formed by the longitudinal axis 74 relative to the horizontal plane 76 by a predetermined number of degrees. Such a change in angle may or may not include the step of rotating the vertical axis 74 through the horizontal position. For example, the frequency may be 90 degrees or more, and in another embodiment, the frequency may be 60 degrees or more.

  While the embodiments described above include some form of rotation of the mobile phone 10, other transfer motions 72 may be contemplated. Other transfer motions 72 include, for example, a swing motion (similar to a salt shake action), a motion toward the target device 66 (squeezing the sponge, which can be detected by a pressure transducer). It may include motion to squeeze the mobile phone 10 (such as motion like time). Also, these motions or other motions can be combined with each other as the mobile phone 10 rotates.

  Next, at block 78, when the transfer motion 72 is detected, data can be transferred from the mobile telephone 10 to the target device 66. In one embodiment, the data to be transferred can be selected by the user. For example, prior to performing transfer motion 72, the user is stored by memory 18 (such as a music file, image file, video file, ringtone, word profile, spreadsheet file, email message, program, etc.). You can navigate to the desired file or navigate to the desired contact list entry and select the desired file or entry for transfer. In another embodiment, the data transfer function 22 may be configured to transfer data related to the image currently displayed on the display 14. For example, if the contact input is highlighted or indicated on the display, the data transfer of block 78 may include a transfer to contact information associated with the target device 66. As another example, if content (eg, text, images, etc.) obtained from the data file is displayed, or if file management information for the data file is displayed or highlighted, block 78 Data transfer may include transferring the associated data file to the target device 66.

  To summarize one embodiment of the data transfer function, the originating device 66 and the target device 10 are used in pairs through blocks 64-68, and then transfer motion is detected by the originating device sensor 56. (72) The selected data or data associated with the current image or images on the display 14 can be transferred to the target device 66.

  In one embodiment, the image displayed on the display 14 during data transfer may be displayed to mimic the fluid affected by the transfer motion 72 by performing image processing (such as image morphing). Good. For example, if the transfer motion 72 is a tilting motion, i.e., a "pour" motion similar to the motion of pouring liquid from a pitcher, the image will appear to flow out and appear to be poured from the top of the display Image processing can be performed on the display. In the present embodiment, the display image is controlled to visually represent the movement of data in the form of a fluid in a manner consistent with the transfer motion 72.

  Similarly, using these techniques, it is possible to transfer data from a fixed or mobile device to a device that is moved according to the transfer motion. For example, following the blocks 64 and 68, if the mobile phone 10 is pulled away from the target device 66 (eg, mimicking a motion that is pulled or pulled out) (in this case as the originating device) The functioning target device 66 will be able to transfer data to the mobile telephone 10 (which in this case functions as a data transfer target device).

  While the invention has been illustrated and described in connection with certain preferred embodiments, it will be understood that equivalents and modifications will occur to those skilled in the art upon reading and understanding the specification. The present invention includes all such equivalents and modifications, and is limited only by the scope of the claims.
